As we begin moving through this New Year, the state of Tennessee has put several new laws into place. A couple of the laws will directly affect vehicles and drivers on the road. Take special note of these two down below. Officers will be out enforcing these new laws. -Drivers are not permitted to talk on the phone in an active school zone. Hand-free devices are permitted for adults only. If you are under the age of 18, you are not allowed to use a cell phone in any capacity while in an active school zone. -Headlights must now be white or amber. No other colored lights will be permitted unless on an emergency vehicle, school bus, mail carrier, or law enforcement vehicle.

Service comes in many forms. This guy had one of the coolest jobs out there. Rest easy Piper, you've earned it.

Don't forget to lock your car doors before leaving your vehicle unattended, and be sure to hide your valuables! We continue to see thefts from vehicles, most of which are from unlocked cars or where items were left in Plain view.

Speaking of Cold weather. Don't forget about your four-legged best friends!

It's cold outside and that trend looks like it will continue on for a while. The cold weather makes it very tempting to step outside and start your vehicle and let it warm up, while you continue you get ready for your day. Criminals are very aware of this and are out looking for unoccupied running vehicles. We have seen a rise in motor vehicle thefts throughout the county since the weather has turned cold, mostly due to people leaving their cars unattended while running. Don't be a victim of this.

It's time for reflections of past events celebrations of new beginnings. When you are out tonight, if you are going to drink, remember to drink responsibly. Don't drink and drive! No amount of fun is worth someone's life! If you find yourself in a position where you've had too much. You can always call a ride! A trip with Uber is much cheaper than a ride in the back of a police car.🎉🚔🚑

The elf says you better follow you #bedtimeroutine. You never know what he's gonna be up to at night.

Merry Christmas from our dispatch and the jail teams. Even though they'll be working on the holidays, they always find it rewarding to help Santa Claus find the right address when he turned around in the area. Happens every year. You'd think he'd gift himself a GPS by now.
